The Shore Thing: A Practical Seminar on Shoring Methods and Case Studies for Historic Buildings

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

9:00 a.m.- 12:30 p.m.

Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 East 11th Street New York, NY 10003


As a building ages, its structural integrity can weaken. Shoring practices play an imperative role in the safety and security of structures, both new and old. Intended as a temporary solution to structural issues, shoring is a complex process that must take into account  numerous variables such as building materials, ground stability, weather, and surrounding infrastructure.

Topics to be covered will include an in-depth discussion of the process of shoring related to historic structures; the role of preservation contractors in this process; emergency shoring situations; and detailed case studies of shoring of local buildings. The program will feature three speakers, each an expert in this field.
